NOTICE NUMBER: 207 /2022

Notice is hereby given of Bitou Municipality’s Draft Operational Plan for the Management of the Central Beach Public Launch Site.  The National Environmental Management:  Integrated Coastal Management Act, 2008 (Act No. 24 of 2008) and the associated Management of Public Launch Sites in the Coastal Zone Regulations GN.

(b)      Determine the type or class of vessel which may be launched from a particular public launch site;
(c)      Impose any prohibitions or conditions relating to the use or management of a public launch site in general or, for any specific launch site; or
(d)      Regulate any other activity relating to the management of a public launch site.

This document will serve as the Operational Plan required in terms of Section 2(2) of the Public Launch Site Regulations (2014).  The Draft Operational Plan for the Management of Central Beach Public Launch Site can be accessed on the Municipal website.
